The Museum of Arts and Design's eight film retrospective Sion Sono: The New Poet will conclude tomorrow night with this riveting epic.


Synopsis: A diversion from Sono's widely recognized horror films, Love Exposure offers both an in-depth and hilarious discourse on sin and lust, as well as a complex study of the loss of identity. Centering around an unusual love triangle made up of characters that defy societal norms, "Love Exposure" is critically acclaimed as Sono's masterpiece.

Winner of numerous international film awards including the Asian Film Awards Best Director award for Sono and the Berlin International Film Festival Caligari Film Award, Love Exposure is a tour de force on repression, cults, Catholicism, and of course, love.
